kerry has said some things today. he said, you know, this isn't a resemption of the cold war and this could be win/win. and that's noble and, gee, i wish it were so. but this is not win/win for vladimir putin. vladimir putin he views this as zero -- should that affect our behavior? i don't know. but we really have to appreciate that for him this is a zero sum game. he's not looking for a win/win scenario. it is, not my words, but they are wonderful words. it was a description of how the europeans deal with the ukrainian crisis two, three weeks ago and the observation was they brought a baguette to a knife fight. and we need to be very much aware after the -- to the extremes that putin might go to because his perception of this isn't win/win. his perception is win/lose. >> extremes are military confrontation. >> one would hope he doesn't do that. he is going to play hard ball over a long period of time because a ukraine outside of his orbit and firmly in the western camp is probably unacceptable to him. so, now, what's the correct? secretary kerry really believes in win/win. w
russian's involvement in the crisis. today the secretary of state, john kerry, made it clear, the u.s. would adamantly oppose any russian military intervention. listen to this. >> we believe national security adviser rice has made it very clear and i have made it clear, that intervention would, in our judgment, be a very grave mistake. it would be completely contrary to russian policies, as stated now with respect to libya, syria, other places. the question is whether or not what is happening now might be crossing a line in any way, and we're going to be very careful in making our judgments about that. >> our national security correspondent, jim sciutto, is here watching all of this. it's fast-moving right now. and a lot of us didn't think it was going to get this bad. but there is potential for a whole lot worse. >> no question. that's been the consistent warning from u.s. officials. don't -- to the russians. don't do any actions that can be misinterpreted. right? and now on the ground there, you are having actions that can easily be misinterpreted. are those forces that you're see
that secretary of state john kerry reached out to the ukranian president today. you're having certainly high level contacts with the u.s., talk of a mediation mission, a talk of international monitors. do you think international monitors would be received well there? the capital? >> reporter: i think definitely they would be received well right now. i mean, ukraine has gone out and reached out to the united nations and the european unions to send these monitors. one of the big sticking points for the russians is they say that the ethnic russians in the crimea and other parts are going to be discriminated against, that they will become second-class citizens. and the government here has said that international monitors can observe and make sure that these people aren't being discriminated against. i think that plays very well into the ukranian government if they are allowed to move freely about the country. but you have a lot of difficulty in moving around in the crimea right now. so it would be interesting to see if they would be able to deploy freely throughout the entire country, jim. >> th
john kerry was on the talk show circuit warning putin he had gone too far. >> this is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. the president is currently considering all options. they're all on the table. >> republicans, meanwhile, wasted no time in using the crisis to take pot shots at the president. >> we have a weakened, indecisive president. president obama needs had to something. >> the international community struggled over how to respond. >> they have been meeting at the brussels headquarters but with no credible military response available, there were just warnings. >> angela merkel spoke to putin sunday and told president obama she was unsure if the russian president was in touch with reality. germany, the u.s. and the other g-7 nations issued a scathing statement that night, stating that russia was committing a clear violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of ukraine. meanwhile on the ground in crimea tensions only grew. >> behind the gate, the ukrainian troops are dressed for combat but look bewildered, and no wonde
. "america is with us." it's hard to argue with that statement as secretary of state john kerry arrived in kiev today laying flowers at a tribute for those who died in last month's protest and to help the new you ukrainian government. as well as an ongoing attempt to isolate russia. >> if russia does not choose to deescalate, our partners will have absolutely no choice but to join us to continue to expand upon steps we have taken in recent days in order to isolate russia politically, diplomatically, and economically. >> and as the u.s. picked its side, russian president vladimir putin finally broke his silence on ukraine. >> "what can be the reason to use our armed forces," he asked? this is, of course, the last resort. the audience was by invitation and russian only, and each reassurance came laced with a threat. "if we see lawlessness in the east of ukraine, and we are asked for help," he said, "we reserve the right to use all options at our disposal to protect those citizens." >> this afternoon, president obama dismissed that. >> what's happening there is not based on actual concern

of state john kerry spent an intense day on the ground today in ukraine. he announced $1 billion in loan guarantees for the new ukrainian government which vladimir putin says doesn't exist. congress says it will meet soon to prepare a package of aid for the contested new ukrainian government. at a very, very base level, there's a real question here as to whether or not our worlds are so different that the russians are not going to care what we do no matter what we do. there's this big threat, right, that we're going to leave the g-8 and not show up at the g-8. vladimir putin said today, i don't care if they show up at the g-8. let them show up, let them not show up, it doesn't matter. are we in such different worlds there's nothing we can do they would care about no matter what we do? and are we in such different worlds that we are always doomed to be purely reactive to an occasionally incoherent and often belligerent russia? if only because we have never understood them? and the only consistency in our relationship with them is our constant surprise at what they do which blind sides us
on the situation. scare of state john kerry says he is in direct contact with russia's foreign minister. defense secretary chuck hagel is taking a very different tact. warning them to stay out of the ukraine. >> for more on this, we have a contributing editor at atlantic media. talk about a confusing situation. it feels like a very critical moment in what direction this crisis is going to go. you have two airports where they have armed gunmen, you have the ukrainian government saying it's an armed invasion by russia. what do you think this tells us? >> russia suffered a big defeat with this revolution of viktor yanukovych. i think what putin is trying to do is send a message that ukraine cannot be anti-russian. one of the leverages they have is the area of crimea. it used to be part of russia, not part of the ukraine. maybe half the people in the crimea are ethnically russian. so by stirring up some kind of secession sentiment there, it's a way of sending a message to the capitol kiev, if you go too far, we're going to stir up a movement that's going to cause you a lot of problems. >> do you thi
